On May 14 KST, Shinji took to her personal Instagram and revealed that she had recently gotten into a car accident. She took a photo from a hospital bed and wrote on her Instagram story, "Let's not use our phones while driving! Or you should at least not negatively affect others. I spent my whole weekend in the hospital, and I can't even fall asleep due to the pain. I also can't focus on my work, and I can't rest during my precious days off. What did I do wrong?"
After receiving a lot of messages of worry and concern, Shinji posted an update, explaining she had gotten into a car accident on Tuesday this week, while on her way to the radio program. Due to the trauma from the collision, her herniated disc in her hips suddenly began to become extremely painful. However, Shinji stated that she was unable to cancel her important schedules and was not able to be hospitalized. Thus, she completed her schedules and then received treatment for her pain. Shinji then ended her post by writing, "Even when you drive and only focus on driving, the most unexpected events can happen and cause dangerous situations. Please don't use your phones for the sake of yourself and for others. Thank you for worrying about me."
